UCU has provided guidance available below on the use of academic role profiles in post-92 institutions.

The advice covers the following:

  • description of the library of academic role profiles
    ( JNCHES academic role profiles and guidance (.pdf))
  • grading outcomes and transition to the new pay spine:
    • confirmation in current grade
    • red circling
    • green circling
  • the grade 1 teaching and scholarship profile
  • allocating JE scores to the library of profiles and setting the range of points for each grade
  • matching a local benchmark profile to a library profile to establish a grading
  • transfer to new grades - the procedural issues
  • assigning academic roles that do not that do not match a library profile
  • use of the profiles following implementation
  • a set-by-step guide to using the profiles.
